    This has been a long road

    We hired Cardinal back in September of 2020 when there were promises of great food, service and overall look. One of the many reasons we chose Cardinal was because it looked like a great venue- you didn鈥檛 need much in terms of decor so figured it was a great cost effective venue as it was all encompassing (great price for food, great venue coordinator team and experienced team). Little did we know that the main Venue coordinator/team would leave, the chef gone, and the replacement catering service company would be fired). Right when we thought the team had everything figured out, there was a big menu tasting, 2 days later we get notified that the team has been fired and they鈥檒l be in touch when they have a new team. 2 months go by and we still don鈥檛 hear anything- we finally get word that they hired a wedding coordinator and a chef, but the chef wouldn鈥檛 do wedding food. We were told by head of operations it was in our best interest to hire an external catering company (at the same time the new wedding coordinator also left). With that suggestion, we also looked into an external wedding planner. So our total budget increased drastically and the team at Cardinal had no care or sense of helping making our big day special.

    Honestly, the entire experience with this venue was so poor and it made the wedding planning experience so much more stressful than it needed to be

    The look of the venue is great, but if I had one suggestion for any new bride if you go with the venue, make sure you have a wedding planner that will handle everything (including communication with the venue).

    Cardinal Golf Club & RedCrest's reply:

    Hello Jennifer,

    Wedding planning shouldn鈥檛 be like this, we really do feel your pain in this process and what you have had to go through is completely unacceptable. Your words as we read them really do strike a nerve that a customer, a valued patron and someone who was beginning the best part of there lives with our club鈥檚 family had to go though all of this in order to be married and start the next chapter of their lives.

    Your journey to a new beginning in your life was interrupted by the unprofessionalism that our club exhibited and I am truly sorry that you had to experience this first hand. Coming out of covid definitely created some struggles for us with major staff turnover and some decisions that were made that ultimately shouldn鈥檛 have been.

    We are dedicated and have worked tirelessly to make sure this does not happen again moving forward. We have hired some incredibly knowledgeable professional hospitality leaders to lead the F&B department so these types of issues don鈥檛 happen in the future.

    We do value our customers and want to make sure that every wedding moving forward is treated with the upmost clarity and honesty as well as the special treatment that should be involved during the process.

    Thank you again, Jennifer and all the best in your future together and please keep in touch as you make memorable moments as husband & wife.

    Poor Planning Post-Covid

    We had an awful time with this venue. We booked Redcrest back in January 2020 prior to the Covid pandemic when they were under a different management company. We had heard great things about this venue - including the food, wedding planning and coordination. It is a beautiful location.

    After patiently waiting out the worst of the pandemic for two years, my partner and I were finally able to have our celebration of marriage at this venue in June 2022. Prior to our wedding date though we went through many significant challenges with this venue. In March 2022 we attended a food tasting and were matched with a wedding coordinator through the venue - then two weeks later we were informed that the catering company was fired along with the coordinator. We waited patiently for two months and heard nothing from the venue despite multiple communications with them, before finally being matched with a
    a new wedding coordinator in May 2022. Thankfully all seemed to be going well as they had the catering organized for the event which was our most significant concern. However, 3 days before our wedding we were informed that this new wedding coordinator had been fired by the venue, with no back up plan in place! Thankfully our wedding was still able to go forward - had it not been for the chef and golf services manager at the venue who pulled in many hours overtime to put our special day together. The wedding was great and all of our guests had a wonderful time.

    This being said it was not worth the stress of having to go through this. I really highly recommend for couples to steer clear of this venue. While it is a beautiful space, the new management there cares little about their staff and will cut corners at any cost. It is wise to look elsewhere for your special day.

    Cardinal Golf Club & RedCrest's reply:

    Hello Talitha,

    First and foremost, congratulations on your recent wedding. We are happy you finally where able to celebrate and enjoy the day with your family and friends.

    We understand the road to your big day was not as you had planned and unfortunately you and your family had to leap over some hurdles along the way to which created a very unpleasant planning journey. Although we cannot go back and change this for you, I would like to let you know that we have made some amazing progress in the past few months by hiring the proper professional industry personnel to make sure the road leading up to anyone鈥檚 big day is a much more pleasant with very few challenges so their wedding at our property is a memorable one.

    We strive for the best and we are aware that we have made some mistakes in how we handled a few weddings coming out of covid but have taken the proper steps and commitment to our customers to make sure we never let these kinds of issues arise again.

    Thanks for your patience and commitment that you and your family brought forth during the planning of your big day. We are ultimately glad to hear that our team was able to provide you with the wedding of your dreams on the day itself. We sure did work hard to make all the pain you went through during the planning process disappear as best we could on the big day and being there at the forefront, I sure did see the smiles and excitement in both yourself and your husband.

    All the best in your future together and please keep in touch as you make memorable moments as husband & wife.

    Perfect Event! - Engagement Party in the Executive Lounge

    We had the most perfect evening at Cardinal Golf Club Executive Lounge! It was cozy, clean and exactly what we had envisioned. There was plenty of space for the tables, dance floor, DJ and Photo booth activities! The food was amazing and the servers working the event were polite and courteous. There is no initial venue/site fee unless you can't meet the minimum capacity of the space which was an added bonus! The overall experience was perfect and many of my guests loved the entire event ! I highly recommend planning your engagement party/ wedding or any other activity at Cardinal Golf Club!

    Dream Wedding

    Gina the wedding coordinator was amazing and very hands on! She took care of a lot of the small details like decorating and organized tastings. The venue is georgous and requires little decoration by you. We had an outside ceremony and the backdrop is spectacular! Green grass and a pond with a fountain. The mini golf area has several spots for photos. Food is included at this venue and my guests are still talking about how delicious it was!

    Cardinal Golf Club & RedCrest's reply:

    Hi Meagan,

    We are so happy that you were happy with your special day!!! Your words and review mean a lot to us here. We strive to make every brides dreams come to reality. Gina always helps to make the day stress free by helping with the execution, and there is always a day of coordinator present here.


    We wish you all the best in the future!!!!


    Best wishes,

    The Cardinal Golf Club

    Amazing Experience

    Alison and Anne Marie were both amazing to work with. They are both professional and detail oriented and are always available to answer your questions leading up to the big day. They also know all of the right questions to ask YOU to make sure your wedding day runs smooth from start to finish. The day of my wedding the weather was calling for 80% chance of rain, but I had this weird gut feeling that everything was going to be fine and kept suggesting that I wanted the ceremony outdoors. I knew I was coming off a bit crazy, but they listened to me and set up indoor and outdoor ceremony options the day of. About an hour before the ceremony, the weather cleared up and Alison was flying around to set up my dream outdoor ceremony. They worked SO hard to make me happiest bride and they pulled off the last minute change flawlessly. The night ran smoothly, all of our guests commented on how great the food and service was. We have no complaints!

    The Perfect Venue

    My husband and I cannot believe how perfect our wedding was. Cardinal and all there staff had a lot to do with this. From the moment we first met and spoke with Gina, our coordinator, she was nothing but accommodating, flexible, and friendly. The executive lounge was perfect for our small wedding and reception. It was gorgeous both inside and out on the grounds. So many of our guests raved about the food and I know I have never had a better meal at a wedding. All evening the staff kept checking in to see if everything was ok and if we needed anything. My husband and I could not recommend this place more. If you use Cardinal as your venue you will not be disappointed!
